Mathilde

DESCRIPTION
Mathilde is an asteroid that is approximately 5km long. She has been taken out of the asteroid belt and rotates around Kuat prime perpendicular to the eliptic of Kuat planet, and the orbital array. One side of her always faces Kuat prime.
She is roughly peanut shaped, with the valley in the middle always facing away from KThe same side of her always faces Kuat prime.

She has one small moon.

ROLE
Mathilde is the Imperial base for the holonet communications into Kuat system.

DEFENCES
There is ground defence static and mobile. There is space defence. There are imperial troops posted to the asteroid and the surrounding defence stations.

There are three mobile stations to defend her, and the moon also has defences. One of the stations is a Cardan I station.

There are two holonet communicators visible on the surface of Mathilde. They are surrounded by concertina, mines, and wpns defenses.
The party has learned that the actual holonet communications is divided into three separate locations inside Mathilde. Each one is made up of a complete holonet transceiver, a translator to subnet, a translator from subnet, a firewall for directing the traffic to/from the holonet, and subnet communications. Communications shifts from one site to the other on a rotational basis, with the other two acting as fail over. (The rebel cell installed their black box to pirate transmissions between the subnet translator and the firewall.)

The base inside Mathilde includes a hangar with capacity for a TIE squadron of TIE fighers and bombers, a Lambda shuttle wing, and regular shipments that come from the Imperial Kuat system port or from Kuat planet.

Each end of the Mathilde is covered in solar panels. The area around each end is mined.

The asteroid is shielded. It has a band shielding, allowing certain velocity to pass within the band. The shielding means that there is very light atmosphere on the asteroid, held in by the shield.
There is further shielding above the communications arrays, to protect them from attack.
